Layered Curried Vegetable & Kidney Bean Moussaka

Layered Curried Vegetable & Kidney Bean Moussaka

This week I indulged in a monumental meal that I had to share with you. A couple of weeks back, my cousin Jaimini and I made a Vegetable Moussaka which was both hearty and delicious.

Craving it again, I knew I could make it just as tasty but spicier with Arvinda’s Curry Masala!

Spicy Mac n' Cheese perfect for a rainy night!

Yesterday at the dentist’s office I luckily caught the final hour of The Oprah Show. I had great timing.

Everyone in the waiting room watched in silence, hanging onto Oprah’s every last word as she delivered a monologue of her life lessons, experiences and wisdom to loyal viewers and most loved fans in farewell to the long-lasting show.

Steamy hot Pakoras (vegetable fritters) are perfect for any victory party. These Pakoras served on newspaper were very memorable at Tithal Beach in Gujarat, India.

Last weekend’s epic Cricket World Cup victory for India had the whole country plus all the NRIs (non-resident Indians) around the world rejoicing in celebration—after all it’s been 28 years since India last won the championship in 1983.

The whole country seemed to stop to watch the finale game, which later turned cities like Mumbai and Delhi into a massive frolic of Indian pride.
